Letter: Incumbents

January 25, 2014 

Three hundred days before we vote again. Are my dear friends, Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Public, tired of these political games? As we know, they are not very entertaining. We can change the entertainment if we vote against all incumbents. I’m sure new people couldn’t be any worse. We voted these bums in, and we can vote them out. As I hear they used to say in Brooklyn at baseball games when they didn’t like the way the game was being played, “Let’s throw the bums out.”
